This delightful end-terrace cottage is located in the heart of the old smuggling village of Cawsand in the forgotten far South East corner of Cornwall.
This cottage offers comfort and luxury throughout, so if you are looking for a beautifully-furnished character cottage, right next to the beach, in an idyllic small village location, then this cosy yet most spacious cottage will certainly fit the bill. Dog friendly too!
Offers available for shorter lets - just get in touch, thanks
As you enter into the cottage you immediately appreciate the quality, pass through the comfortable sitting room with a woodburner, ideal for those cooler evenings and winter breaks, to the splendid well-equipped kitchen and dining area.
On the first floor there are two bedrooms, a double and a twin bedroom, and on the second floor is the master bedroom benefiting from en-suite facilities.
A delightful enclosed garden is at the rear of the cottage, complete with decking area that almost counts as a further room with its new, high quality furniture. This is a wonderful place to relax peacefully at the end of the day, with views over the beach and out to sea over Plymouth Sound. It is also a small dog friendly house.
Directly opposite the cottage is the Shop in the Square offering you all your everyday needs, as well as local homemade food, and takeaways. To the right of the cottage is the Cross Keys Inn, offering a selection of local ales and with a reputation for good food specialising in local fish and seafood.
Further afield but only two miles away along the coast for that special occasion is one of Cornwall's finest restaurants, The View, perched high on the cliffs at Whitsand Bay with a menu that changes daily.
Also at Whitsand Bay is a beautiful five mile stretch of golden sand, a favourite with beach lovers. It is also a dog friendly beach.
The historic Mount Edgcumbe House and Country Park is also very close by and is well worth a visit; set in 865 acres of magnificent grounds of Grade l listed gardens and many listed structures, it is worth going for the spectacular views alone.
Should you wish to visit Plymouth, a ferry in-season will take you from the beach directly to Plymouth's Barbican.
The famous South West Coast Path is accessed from just behind the cottage, making this a haven for walkers of all abilities and ideal for dogs.
With so many great days out on offer nearby, a stay in this beautiful cottage will be enjoyed at any time of year and remembered forever.
The twin villages of Kingsand and Cawsand, with narrow streets winding between pastel-coloured cottages, lie on the Rame Peninsula just 5 miles from Plymouth, but because the high ground of Mount Edgcumbe lies between, you are not aware of being near a large city. Instead, you can relax in the peace and quiet of village life, and look out over Plymouth Sound which offers calm waters ideal for watersports, fishing and bathing. Take a walk south along the coastal path to Penlee Point for the glorious views of Rame Head, towering above the sea, or, a walk north along the coast will take you to Mount Edgcumbe Park with fabulous views of Plymouth Sound. From Cawsand, take a ferry trip to Plymouth and visit the Aquarium, the historic Barbican or enjoy a spot of retail therapy. Just a mile west of Cawsand lies Whitsand Bay, with 4 miles of sandy beach and dramatic cliffs. You really are spoilt for choice in this ‘secret hideaway’.
